Mercedes-Benz unveiled its new SLK-Class in Stuttgart. More attractive, more powerful and sportier than its predecessor, this appealing two-seater was offered with a choice of three new engines with a performance range extending from 120 kW/163 hp to 265 kW/360 hp. This included – for the first time in this vehicle class – an eight-cylinder supplied by Mercedes-AMG. The SLK 350 was powered by a new 200 kW/272 hp V6 engine.
